15.01.2023 - 2023 Retrospective and 2024 What's in Store?
I have just published Episode #88, Season 4, of my Wild Nature Photography Podcast. In this episode, I retrospectively look back at the travel and workshops from 2023 and dive into the 2024 year of travel ahead. During the year 2023, I guided twelve different workshops and expeditions around the world, as well as several private workshops and multiple print and processing workshops. Links to the 2023 Trip Reports are included below. My book pick of the year is Vincent Munier's new masterpiece 'Munier' (Podcast review coming very soon) and my gear pick of the year is the Canon RF 100-500mm lens. Also included is the news of an exciting new ambassadorship appointment with Mr. Jan Gear (I will have more to say on that topic in a future blog post). Lastly, my favourite photographs from 2023 can be seen online HERE.January 2023 Pallas Cat Expedition to Eastern Mongolia Trip ReportJanuary 2023 Snow Leopard of Western Mongolia Trip ReportFebruary 2023 Arctic Foxes in Iceland in Winter Trip ReportMarch 2023 Ellesmere Island in Search of the White Wolf Expedition ReportApril 2023 Svalbard Spring Light Expedition ReportMay 2023 Zululand South Africa Workshop ReportJune 2023 Barrow Alsaka Scouting Trip ReportSeptember 2023 Wild Wolves of the Taiga Forest Workshop ReportSeptember 2023 Eagle Owl and Golden Eagle Workshop ReportOctober 2023 Greenland East Coast Winters Cusp Expedition ReportSeptember 2023 Icleand North East Landscape Extension ReportDecember 2023 Antarctica Return to the White Continent Expedition ReportSupport the showWild Nature Photo TravelPhotography Workshops and Expeditions around the Worldwww.wildnaturephototravel.comSupport the Show and fellow Nature Photographer: https://www.buymeacoffee.com/JoshuaHolko/membershipFind us on Social MediaFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/Joshuaholko/Twitter: https://twitter.com/HolkoJoshuaInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/joshuaholko/Need to Contact us? info@jholko.com
29.12.2023 - Antarctica Wrap Up and 2023 Podcast Year in Review

29.12.2023 - Antarctica Wrap Up and 2023 Podcast Year in Review
In this podcast episode, I wrap up my 2023 Antarctica expedition with some initial thoughts on this incredible trip (full trip report coming soon), give my thoughts on a short scouting trip to Easter Island, and review the 2023 Podcast year. Although I did not squeeze in as many Podcasts as I would have liked in 2023, I managed to get a new episode out almost every two weeks with an average of 2.08 (much better than I first thought). The podcast was downloaded across a total of 67 countries over the course of the year, with the USA topping the charts for the most downloads. The most downloaded episode was the Ethical Use of Drones in Wildlife Photography, which was published on the 11th of July, 2023. Of course, I will be endeavouring to improve on those statistics in 2024 with more episodes with even higher quality content. In this episode, I also cover the recently published January 2024 edition of the UK's EOS magazine, which featured my photography on the front cover, as well as an extended feature on my Polar photography. Also recently published was a second feature on my photography in Food and Travel magazine.Support the showWild Nature Photo TravelPhotography Workshops and Expeditions around the Worldwww.wildnaturephototravel.comSupport the Show and fellow Nature Photographer: https://www.buymeacoffee.com/JoshuaHolko/membershipFind us on Social MediaFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/Joshuaholko/Twitter: https://twitter.com/HolkoJoshuaInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/joshuaholko/Need to Contact us? info@jholko.com

28.10.2023 - When Serendipity Meets Technology
I have just published episode #83 of my Wild Nature Photography Podcast. In this long overdue episode (apologies for the significant delay), I give my thoughts on two new Canon Lenses, the RF 10-20mm and the yet-to-be-officially-announced 200-800mm telephoto lens (look for the official announcement of this lens in the next few days). I also briefly discuss the new HDR feature in the latest version of Adobe Lightroom and the excellent new Point Colour / HSL local adjustment capability that is now available inside the individual masking tools in Lightroom. I also give my initial impressions of the 8th edition of the Bird Photographer of the Year annual book (includes three of my commended photographs) and Scott Portelli's new Antarctica book (reviews of both will be coming in future podcast episodes). Additionally, I provide details of my upcoming webinar for BenQ on post-production. This webinar will be held on the 8th of November and is free (you just need to register). I also discuss the main topic of this episode: what happens when serendipity meets technology and my experience photographing the European Pygmy Owl in near total darkness in northern Finland with the Canon EOS R3 and Canon RF600mm f4L IS USM lens. By way of preview, the European Pygmy Owl will be the November photograph of the month for 2023.Adobe Lightroom HDR Feature Explanatory NoteBird Photographer of the YearBenQ Webinar on Post ProductionEuropean Pygmy Owl PhotographSupport the showWild Nature Photo TravelPhotography Workshops and Expeditions around the Worldwww.wildnaturephototravel.comSupport the Show and fellow Nature Photographer: https://www.buymeacoffee.com/JoshuaHolko/membershipFind us on Social MediaFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/Joshuaholko/Twitter: https://twitter.com/HolkoJoshuaInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/joshuaholko/Need to Contact us? info@jholko.com
